    Lovely place, great price. Just a shame Wotif falsely advertises breakfast included when it isn't, and also Wotif ignores all emails.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Awesome, central, clean & affordable. The only thing negative was that our car couldn't fit into the underground car park. We paid for a space, but then couldn't fit into the driveway. I managed to find a street park but only because we have a Disability Permit. Staff handled it beautifully & refunded the $30. Otherwise, HIGHLY recommend the place. The Pool up on the top floor looked clean & inviting & the view of the city was great. Hubby & I met some International Visitors & had a 'sing-a-long' which was SO much fun! The shower water pressure & temperature was brilliant! The room/bedding was crisp & clean. Congrats to the Houekeeping Staff. ALL of the Reception Staff were welcoming & helpful. Congratulations Sydney Central YHA, Australia! You guys ROCK!!

    not really my place

    a bit disappointed. I stayed four beds dom. There was one guy who is supposed not in our room. The room was full and 5th guy came to the room at 2am and he found out someone took his bed and got the staff. The staff woke up all of us to check the people at 2am!! after that I couldn't sleep well. Next day same thing happened. this time they cleaned my bed and try to get my spot but luckily I found out and that guy moved another room. The guy who was not supposed to be there didn't hear anything from the reception and had no idea about it. I booked 3days but I gave up the last day and moved other place.
